Watch a backyard rink built through 28,000 timelapse photographs


Contrary to assumptions gleaned from properties near Lake Minnetonka, Minn., and Ontario, houses with home skating rinks are not always born that way, silver spoon in hand. Often, as this a timelapse video reveals, private, 15,000-gallon rinks are true labors of love, a monumental undertaking designed solely to suck up hours of hard work. Here outside Chicago, the backyard project took only five days from start to finish and was chronicled through a dizzying 28,000 individual photos—creating either a moment of Zen or a moment of utter, obliterating chaos, depending on one's perspective. Watch below.
